           ABOUT US 

The Club was formed in 1946 and competed in the Mountain District
Football Association until 1966 when the MDFA amalgamated with the
Yarra Valley Football League to form the Yarrra Valley-Mountain
District Football & Netball League (YVMDFNL). 
We now compete in the AFL Outer East League which was formed in 2019 as a result of the merger of the SEFNL and the YVMDFNL

The founding fathers of the Club were, in the main, returned
servicemen who lived in Upwey and the adjoining township of Tecoma
(thus the name Upwey-Tecoma). They chose the tiger as the Club's emblem
and so the Club is more commonly known as the "Upwey Tigers". Our home
ground is officially called the "Alistair Gillies Oval" but everyone
knows it simply as "The Dome"
 

 For the uninitiated, Upwey is situated some 35 kilometres east of
Melbourne, which is the capital city of the Australian state of
Victoria, and the other half of the Club's name, Tecoma, is another
couple of kilometres further east. We are a couple of the many small
townships to be found in the Dandenong Ranges, which is a popular
destination for day trippers and picnicers who are entranced by the
natural scenic beauty and the many wonderful gardens in the area.

Stuart Hill to take the reins as Senior Coach for 2021 and 2022 Seasons

 The Upwey Tecoma Football Netball Club is excited to announce the appointment of Stuart Hill as playing Senior Coach for the 2021 and 2022 seasons.

 Stuart joined the Club for the 2020 season as a playing assistant coach and key position backman from EFL Premier Divisions Norwood Football Club, with the intention of developing his coaching credentials so that one day he could move into a senior coaching position. That day has now arrived.

 As a player, Stuart's honour roll includes multiple EFL Team of the Year and Interleague appearances, including two as captain. He was a member of Norwood's Team of the Decade, having also skippered the club and won a club B&F. In his younger years, he played with the Box Hill Hawks as well as representing Vic Metro.

 Over the course of this strange 2020 non season, Stuart has quickly developed a love for the Club. He was a great support to departing coach Adam Parker, demonstrating an in-depth knowledge of the game and game styles, and has already formed strong relationships with the playing group.

A Physical Education teacher at Salesian College, Stuart is eager to take on the challenges that lie ahead and to leave his mark on the Upwey Tecoma Football Netball Club.

Please join me in congratulating Stuart, his wife Whitney, and daughters Sloane and Kennedy on his appointment as coach of the mighty Tigers.
